Royal Marine (?) badge ID

#1
Need help in ID'ing this badge: This is the info, badge made by the Germans, during WW2, and issued to Royal Marines prisoners of war.
The badge is 46mm across, die-struck from a grey metal alloy and fitted with a horizontal, brooch-type fastener.
Why the Royal Marines should be singled out to have badges made for them in P.o.W camps, I cannot guess, unless the prisoners themselves took the initiative.

Any help on the ID and if story is true.
Thanks.

Is it Definately from WW2?, just wondering if it could be something that the RM who were interned in holland during WW1 could have had struck, certainly is an interesting one.
